Mobile Bookmarks folder not stored using 'Export bookmarks to HTML' (but JSON ok)

Firefox version: 95.0.1 x64 on Linux Mint 19.1, running in safe-mode

As title says, the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder synced from a Firefox Android aren't saved when exporting the bookmarks to an HTML file. They ARE saved during 'Backup to a JSON' but HTML with 20,000 bookmarks is much easier to edit than a JSON (unless anyone has a handy and quick JSON editor recommendation?).

So bug, or notbug?

recent iOS update to Catalina 10.15.7 resulted in deleting Firefox entirely. Just reloaded Firefox browser (which I prefer to Safari) but none of my bookmarks survived. Can I restore them from some record of them within Firefox? or do I just have to recreate them all?

Hello, I have my most used bookmarks in the "Bookmark Menu" folder. The other bookmarks are in folders located in the " Other Bookmarks" folder and I have 6 links in the "Bookmarks Toolbar".

When I need to backup I use Export Bookmarks to HTML and save on PC.

Problem is that when I use Import Bookmarks from HTML, all folders are empty including Bookmarks Toolbar. All the missing links are now added to the bottom in Bookmark Menu. I now have to cut and paste the links back into the empty folders.

Why are the links not going back to the same place when importing back.

ls, Yesterday morning I had 1724 bookmarks . Last night 3448 , (1724 double). This morning Firefox completely removed from the PC and reinstalled. result: 1724 bookmarks. A few hours later again 3448. Anyone know how I can correct this? I don't think it is possible to remove the duplicate in a fast way.

To make matters worse, Waterfox mimicked its big brother .result: also double bookmarks. Sincerely, Henknan

Folders disappear too quickly when dragging links into nested bookmark folders

Hi,

It's virtually impossible for me to drag and drop a bookmark into the correct folder because the folders close so quickly. Any motion of the mouse that's not completely lined up with an existing folder while trying to navigate a menu tree to a target folder causes the menu tree to close almost instantly.

This has become increasingly difficult for me as aging has impacted my accuracy with pointing devices, and made dragging and dropping bookmarks to save them virtually impossible.

I trolled through the configuration settings, searching for "menu," "bookmark," and "delay." The only seemingly appropriate setting was "ui.click_hold_context_menus.delay," but increasing that didn't appear to impact the hover-over menu close delay time as desired, even after a Firefox restart.

Please help!

Thanks,

Ray

Firefox bookmarks-list window (ctrl-shift-O) behaviors

1. topic Earlier i could edit my Firefox bookmarks in the bookmarks-list window and then i change my cursor to other place and Firefox (miraculously) saved that new modification of bookmark to bookmarks-list. Nowadays i can't do that. Actually, i can edit a bookmark but i can't save it? It doesn't happend so any more and there isn't any "save"-button? Now I don't know how i can save bookmark if i edit it?

Currently it seems to be only way to get new modification of bookmark if i browse to some web-address then save that address to bookmarks-list. After that you can remove the old, wrong web-address. But you can't get own headline text to your new bookmark?

2. topic This is long-time idea. I have lots of bookmarks and sub-folders in my bookmarks-list (library). When i add new bookmark to list and like to put it to some specific sub-folder i can use left side bookmark-tree to browse bookmark to correct place. When i want search e.g. all bookmarks which have string "Firefox", i can't see if they all are same specific sub-folder like i want to. I can see headline text and web-address but i can't see where that bookmark is in library. Could we get bookmark-tree-path somehow to search output? And, it would be nice if i could click directly to that sub-folder to see if there would be even better bookmark for my need? At this moment (and earlier also) keywords are the only way try check if bookmarks are correct folder. But almost always web-pages don't fill keywords. So you should do it yourself. The bookmark-tree-path would be much more useful info after use search to find some subject bookmarks.
